Gordon Ramsay is a famous petrolhead, with Ferrari being his brand of choice. The celebrity chef reportedly owns eight Ferraris in Britain alone, with more at his American home – and he has a novel trick for utilising some of their vast horsepower without getting pulled over.

The chef admitted in an interview that he wraps the number plates of his cars in clingfilm. This means that if he's snapped by a speed camera, the flash will reflect – rendering his licence information invisible and ensuring he's not caught speeding.
